Fabulous Flowering Branches

Marcella from Power Poppy has done it again!  She has created another digital stunner for everyone to colour!  This one is of beautiful blossoming crabapples on their glorious branch.  This new digital stamp set & double sentiment released this week will surely delight the gardner in your life and it’s perfect for Mom too!

Introducing… Flowering Branches!
If you happen to miss the Power Poppy Instant Gardners (our Digital Release Team) in action this week, you might want to check out THIS post on the Power Poppy Blog!  These ladies really know how to colour!!!

For my card today, I began by printing out my “Flowering Branches” image onto white cardstock and then die cutting a single rectangular panel around it.  Then I coloured the whole thing with my Copic Markers and then die cut the panel twice more to create nesting rectangles.
But instead of lining them all up again, I adhered them all a little wonky! 

To add some shimmer and shine, I added some fun Wink of Stella pen to my stamped sentiment (from the Simply Camellias clear stamp set) and some of my open blooms.

Now… check out what the rest of the extremely talented Bloom Brigade designer blogs have in store for you...

    Absolutely stunning! I love how you have coloured all those layers and positioned them how you have - brilliant!

  2. Ally, this is gorgeous! I really do love how you've cut them and layered them with the DP in a "wonky" way...fabulous card with beautiful coloring! Hugs!

  3. What a clever thing to cut frames from the image Ally.

  4. Totally cool! I love this... very cool idea, your coloring rocks and that stitched like border is awesome.

  5. Such a Pretty Card, the coloring is lovely but what really caught my eye is how you did your layers, a really cleaver idea and one I'll have to try. And then the tag for the Happy Wishes, I'm sure it's been out for years but just Love how you used it here....
    Love the whole look!

  6. Your card is just beautiful. Your coloring is so pretty and I like the wonky layers.

  7. Oh Ally!! I love your creative framing, and that extra sparkle on the sentiment! Beautiful!

  8. LOVE how you did this, you clever girl! I've never seen it done quite this way. You're just full of brilliant ideas. I watched your coloring video the other day and I tell you I was SO inspired!

  9. ugh....I’m so late in getting over here Ally---sorry! I just LOVE this card. The way you layered and coloured is just gorgeous!

  10. stunning card Ally. Very impressive.
